    Pros

    It is simple and easy to use, non experience users can do visualizations in a fast way, data discovery becomes natural with necto, it has interesting features but one that I liked the most was the social or collaborations you can do

    Cons

    If you don't have a backend well structured (ETL) it will be kind of difficult to begin with, you have to work on your data alignment first and then use necto only as a front end, for some users or organizations this can be a problem. Before I started to use it some colleague said android integration was a problem but did not experienced that

    Pros

    What I like the most about Necto is a self-service Product – it employs both basic and advanced analytic features. Any user can create dashboards and visualizations within a secure and single application connecting multiple sources in just few clicks.

    Cons

    This product has not good portability, is not compatible with some other Systems like Mac and the fact that it doesn't support Predictive analytics features.

    I used Necto to build a Marketing dashboard for post-launch analysis of services. The tool is very easy to use , with a simple click , you can import Data from multiple sources and build Visualisations , It's very intuitive and very good for interactive analytics. Excellent geo analytics support, readily integrate with maps and plots the charts Another thing I like most is its self service capability , collaboration features with discussion/likes/dislikes and other interactive features to ensure effective data analysis. With Necto I really minimize the dependency on IT team. In contrast Necto has a limited support for Big Data Analytics

Auto-generated dashboards feature 2. Easy to used and highly customized info-graphics options. 3. Tools is user friendly. 4. Error notification feature is useful. 5. Handy collaborating feature to initiate discussions with relevant users. Though It's new BI tool in the market, we are getting good community support for users and tutorials for beginners.

    It is really intelligent enough to manage the metadata and hence giving a wider and more intuitive options to use the data for creating charts and graphs. You can do everything that you wish through simply drag and drop and few clicks. This makes a user to understand the data really quick and in a more efficient manner. Everything is quick, easy and intuitive to develop, be it a simple bar graph that gives category wise measures or a trend analysis of historical data or a gauge to understand the thresholds, anything. The best part is that it a very simple mechanism to share the analysis and invite others to contribute to it. A collaborative BI platform in real sense. Don’t worry if you have multiple databases, my client’s had diverse databases and were present in multiple geographies to our utter surprise it was really easy to get hold of all the datasets and adding to Necto, within a couple of days my client had a development environment available to start the analysis on their data. Its a Incredible BI tool for data Exploration and Visualization.Business users are quite happy using Necto due to its ease of use and supportive business intelligence feature.

    Pros

    Treats the data on the fly and creates smart visualizations. Creates basic data arrangements easily without waiting for the users to instruct. For an example, given a date field it creates a calendar hierarchy by default. Comes with lot of option to modify and build the smart infographic. Uses innovative pictures and charts to create the dashboards Provides a centrally hosted collaborative platform to share your work to a wider audience but only of your choice. Panorama can help medium AND small business us to replace costly BI tools and bring down the licensing cost and made tool available to more users.

    Cons

    Ability to handle bigdata and advance data modelling capbilities. Sometimes, the dashboard looks a bit complicated loads with lots of gadgets at first look, for the naïve users it may be difficult to analyze, though it can be changed per the requirement.

Eye catching info graphics, image bank, numerous chart options and functionality for slicing and dicing, amazing recommendation engine which can give more insights to users. Gives IT more power to govern and manage the platform with ease, on the other hand it is equally powerful for business users.

    I highly recommend this tool for any business that wishes for quicker and qualitative analysis of their data. This tool is hosted over web and can connect to any industry standard backend packages that we know. It is really intelligent enough to manage the metadata and hence giving a wider and more intuitive options to use the data for creating charts and graphs. You can do everything that you wish through simply drag and drop and few clicks. This makes a user to understand the data really quick and in a more efficient manner.

The best part is that it a very simple mechanism to share the analysis and invite others to contribute to it. A collaborative BI platform in real sense. Its ability to treat and visualize the data is simply amazing and there might be countable such options available currently apart from Necto. Slicing and dicing of data is really quick. It also provides customizable text area to place the interesting insights. I have worked on several tools before but Necto is a real game changer. It would be amazing to see what new features it evolves with. Again a highly recommended tool for holistic and self-service BI.

    Pros

    Connects to any data (most backend packages as per industry standards)
    Understands the nature of data and the metadata really well. Treats the data on the fly and creates smart visualizations.
    Creates basic data arrangements easily without waiting for the users to instruct. For an example, given a date field it creates a calendar hierarchy by default.
    Comes with lot of option to modify and build the smart infographic. Uses innovative pictures and charts to create the dashboards
    Provides a centrally hosted collaborative platform to share your work to a wider audience but only of your choice. The role based access is really amazing
    It has smart computing abilities to deliver some of the complex analytical requirements such as what-if analysis, pinpointing the actual issues and side by side comparison of business factors.
    Helps you identify why you are succeeding and where you should shift your focus to.
    The maps are amazing and they just don’t act as control points rather you can populate various measures on them making it really efficient to understand the business in geographical info graph
    All in all a really great tool to work on and absolute value for money.

    Cons

    Ability to handle bigdata and advance data modelling capbilities.

    We are using this tool for self service data discovery for quite some time. It also supports loads of info graphics which enrich dashboard’s visual appeal. The tool is also very easy to use, we got on premise training from Panorama, within days we were novice enough to play with the tool. The customer service is very responsive, they answers our queries. I saw lot of people complaining about lack of community forum, but they do have a forum which is quite active.

    Pros

    The tool is very easy to use, with click you can import data and create the visualizations.
    The things like I most it supports variety of charts, I was quite bored with my previous BI tool which mostly support bar, line an pie chart. I can now create more meaningful charts radar, donought, pareoto, scatter, range, point, boxplot etc.
    Good geo analytics support, readily integrate with maps and plots the charts.
    Good in memory performance, return results with clicks.
    Relatively good performance

    Cons

    More community support
    Publishing and scheduling is bit complicated
    The dashboard also looks bit complicated and loaded with loads with lots of gadgets at first look
    No support for Linux or commodity hardware.

    I am into research and development on Business Intelligence tools and I totally believe that Panorama Necto 14 is a “socially enabled” business intelligence solution, allowing users to track not only the business data collected, but interdepartmental conversations occurring over the BI system itself. By tracking and analyzing those conversations. Necto provides suggestions on possible collaborations between team members. Comments made in the BI system are integrated as metadata attached to the intelligence being discussed. Team members are able to share data and figures in real-time between different departments, streamlining the process for any operation from identifying and remedying a sales shortfall to tracking inventory. Panorama Necto 14 on the other hand is built to support social collaboration so that its analytics features can be shared to improve decision making by incorporating various organizational inputs. Additionally it supports an infographic display for information review which is unlike most of its competitors. Business users can use Panorama Necto 14’s self-service data discovery and visualization capability to uncover hidden insight, present vital data, and track performance using interactive

    Panorama Necto 14 has best of Data Discovery and Enterprise BI with a unified web-based UI
